Emerson’s Power Transmission Solutions has created the NG Evo chain, which features a low-friction belt for high-speed conveying. This type of conveyor is ideal for bottling and processing and an improvement on the original NG chain.
“The new chain provides a higher breaking load, greater elasticity, lower coefficient of friction and much greater abrasion resistance than the original. All of the physical properties of the original NG chain have been enhanced,” said Jeff Himes, System Plast Senior Product Manager.
Most beverage handling conveyors are lubricated with soap and water. This type of handling system is environmentally inefficient and can cause hazards, leaks, and other costly problems. The NG Evo chain, however, uses mineral oil-based dry lubricants to avoid such pitfalls.
